Study Says Kidney Bean Leaves Work Against Bed Bugs, My Cleaning Products Compares Its With a Non-Pesticide Bed Bug Spray

According to the report, the trichomes are about 10 micrometers in diameter and about 50-100 micrometers high, MCP detailed. And as the authors of the study, headed by Micheal Potter, an entomologist from the University of Kentucky, said, those hairs particularly puncture bed bugs and hold them in place, it added.

However, as based on the same report, the company stated that attempts to replicate the leaves to make them more efficient against the pests were unsuccessful.
